I have been on a weight-roller coaster for a long time now (as you can see from my timeline below). However, I gained an ADDITIONAL 55lbs when I got pregnant and only managed to lose 20lbs since I gave birth in July 2017. I initially gained 60lbs in 6 months due to stress and a newly diagnosed hypothyroidism in 2012.

I am looking for a weight loss buddy.

    I love your ID! I'm in northern St. Lawrence County NY -- probably not too far from you.
    Glad to hear that your knee is somewhat better -- it's not hard enough to stay motivated without that, right?
    Keep up the good work -- it looks like your first goal is going to be reached!
    Have a Happy Yule! (Even though it certainly won't be a white one!)

    I just joined the teachers learning to lose page and replied to one of your postings about managing too much. I noticed on your page that you teach in the the summer I teach viola at Luzerne Music Center in Lake Luzerne, NY...near Lake George. Where are you?
